    ‘Countries Of Concern!’ Is Pakistan Worse Than Turkey? 


    So the obscurantist government of Pakistan, a land where religious liberty is a sick joke….

    Do The Wicked Go To Pakistan When They Die? 

    Sectarian Barbarism – Alive And Thriving In Pakistan

    ……

    …..has decided to boycott all French imports?

    France should of course reciprocate and if Macron does so, it will be interesting to see if his ‘EU partners’ show more solidairty than they did when Britain was confronted by Argentine aggression forty years ago.

    Falklands Pride, Yes, but Reflect on EU Back-Stabbing 

    Regardless of Mitterand’s mealy-mouthing back then, Brits, Brexit patriots or not, should be on France’s side on this.

    But don’t hold your breath waiting for the Brussels Empire to swing into solidarity….

    …though there are reasons aplenty for all civilised nations to sanction Pakistan, and another country with a record of villainy, Turkey, which is not only menacing another ‘EU partner’ Greece, but has overtly sponsored repeat violations of Greek sovereign borders by hordes of savages.

    .

    Invasion 2020- Not An Invasion, Say ‘NGO’ Liars! 

     

    It was just a short while ago that a French MEP, Nicolas Bay, urged the EUSSR to ‘stop ‘showering’ Ankara and Islamabad with subsidies and put up sanctions against them.’

    Nicolas Bay MEP

    M.Bay designated both of them ‘countries of concern’ amid rising terror attacks in Europe….

     “During the European Parliamentary plenary of November, 11 French MEP Nicolas Bay from the Identity and Democracy Group had strong words against European aid to Pakistan and Turkey in light of threats coming from both countries.

    MEP Bay’s comments were made in the context of a debate on the ‘fight against terrorism, freedom of expression and education”.

    That French patriot is of course from Marine Le Pen’s patriot bloc, and whether his suggestions will be taken up either by the Euro-Commissars or by the Elysee Palace remains to be seen.

    From across the Channel, from outside their orbit, the UK should step up to shame them into action.

    At the very least Britain’s Boris Johnson should issue a call for the expulsion of Pakistan from what used to be called the British Commonwealth…

    .

    …but, in an early example of ‘woke’ weaselling, was shorn of that offensive word ‘British!’

    Jakarta Boycott Reality Check? Ask Fadli, Caught Smiling With Trump! 


    Presumably not many fanatical Islamists go shopping at the Galerie Lafayette (there is a branch here in Jakarta) but then neither do I, though I have wandered in while waiting for friends in town.

    Most department stores here are staffed by cuties…

    .

    .

    …so it makes more sense to admire them than hang about in some expensive coffee-shop!

    I don’t know how many of the items on sale are imported from France, but if they are, they’ll be out of my price league anyway, and probably that’s about the only thing I have in common…

    …with those who went shuffling along on the very short ‘Long March’ a few years ago!

    Beware! Very Short Fanatic ‘Long March,’ Jakarta, This Friday! 

    That’s the problem the extremists will encounter on their proposed ‘boikot’ of French goods, their notion of retaliation for the welcome, if belated…

    .

    .Macron Man – ‘Dissolve Enemies of France’ – Why Only Now? 

    …moves by Macron in the wake of the brutal sectarian atrocity in Paris two weeks ago. 

    Harsh reality check for Islamists, but as the headline in one Indonesian newspaper reminded them…

    Rich people who are fans of luxury brands don’t necessarily want to boycott French products

    But interesting to read on and be unsurprised that it’s not only the FPI notable, Habib Novel Bamukmin, a regular subject of concern in my pages…

    ..

    Novel has featured here before, for enlightened statement which bring such credit to his cause.   – “women already have limitations, let alone non- Muslims!” http://megapolitan.kompas.com/read/2013/10/26/1937287/.FPIMenolak.Lurah.Susan.Harga.Mati

    Jakarta Facing Another Fanatic Friday – and Thursday…and Besok? 

    ….who’s being shrill for a boycott. He’s been a busy fellow over the years….

    FPI leader Habib Novel on trial for violent protest, 

    …but…

    There’s somebody else we have mentioned over the years, who holds a senior position in the DPR ( parliament) a certain Fadli Zon, who has also joined in the boycott chorus.

    Fadli Zon, who previously distinguished himself when he criticized the military’s decision to strip Lebak military commander of his post for recruiting the FPI in Banten to take the training recently, calling the decision “regrettable”.

    ….

    Mr. Fadli Zon is undoubtedly rich – he’s a senior politician, after all! – and could surely ask around his equally rich colleagues if they, or their wives and daughters, will shun French imports.

    He’s not a man I have much time for. 

    We covered Fadli’s declaration of ‘open house’ at the Indonesian Parliament buildings a couple of years ago.

     The Deputy Speaker was eager to offer accommodation to Islamist extremists who’d come into Jakarta for the fanatic demo which ended in shocking violence that awful Friday night.

    Will Fadli Open ‘The People’s House” To Jakarta’s Homeless? 

    We asked if he would be equally hospitable to people who genuinely need somewhere to sleep, like Jakarta’s homeless.

    I didn’t expect a response, nor did I get one.

    But now I am reminded of an even more pressing case that ought to stir Fadli’s charitable instincts, namely, those Ahmadi refugees.

    Fadli Zon justified his offer to let intolerant extremists sleep over in the House of Representatives by saying it’s the ‘house of the people.’

    The plight of the Ahmadis remains dire.

    Petisi – Kebebasan Beragama! Freedom Of Religion! 

    oooo

    But my overseas readers will maybe be more interested in another photo of Fadli Zon we used around that time, which I’d forgotten all about!

    .

    According to the Deputy Chairman of Gerindra, the meeting was only limited to friendship. As a future president and also a businessman, Trump is a friend of Indonesia. Fadli even said he had taken a photo with Trump in a selfie and asked for an autograph.  http://en.metrotvnews.com/read/2015/09/04/427845/meeting-with-donald-trump-fadli-zon-said-that-it-all-spontaneous

      Did you find any luxury French products at Superindo on your last shopping trip?
      No? I didnt think so.
      You’ll have to travel to Kemang, Ross.
